Most decks are constructed of timber and, while timber adds charm and warmth to outdoor spaces, they are susceptible to various problems that require repairing and maintenance. From rotting wood to loose boards, addressing these issues is crucial to ensure the longevity and safety of your deck.

  • Rotting and decay: One of the most common issues with old timber decks is rotting and decay, especially in areas exposed to moisture. Rotting wood not only compromises the structural integrity of the deck but also poses safety hazards.
  • Loose or damaged boards: Over time, timber boards may become loose or damaged due to weathering, foot traffic, or improper installation. Loose boards can be a tripping hazard and compromise the stability of the deck.
  • Warping and cupping: Warping and cupping are common issues with timber decks caused by exposure to moisture and fluctuations in temperature. Warped or cupped boards not only detract from the appearance of the deck but also create uneven surfaces that can be unsafe.
  • Mould and mildew growth: Timber decks that are exposed to moisture and lack adequate ventilation are prone to mould and mildew growth. Not only do these look unsightly but mould and mildew can pose health risks to occupants.
  • Fading and discolouration: Exposure to sunlight and UV rays can cause timber decks to fade and discolour over time, detracting from their natural beauty.
